Research Experience

M.Tech Project: Sponsored by Schneider Electric India

Objective-“Feasibility study on increase of electrical conductivity in Aluminium (E91) samples by cryogenic treatments

for replacing copper in busbar applications” under the guidance of Prof.V.V. Rao IIT KGP


Extended Cryogenic treatment and cryo rolling are done on E91 Aluminium sample.

Electrical conductivity is measured by four probe technique at cryogenic temperatures using an in-house

developed cryostat, LN2 and temperature sensors.

The microstructure and particle distribution after extended cryogenic treatment are compared with virgin

samples by using X-ray diffraction technique.

B.Tech Projects:

1) In collaboration with Defence Metallurgical Research Laboratory Hyderabad

Objective : Development of Ultrafine grain size Nickel using CGP technique” under the guidance of Scientist F ”T.Raghu,

Defence Metallurgical Research Laboratory Hyderabad and Prof R.Markandeya Department of Metallurgical

Engineering, JNTUCE Hyderabad.”


A new intense plastic straining technique named ‘Constrained groove Pressing’ was developed for the

fabrication of plate-shaped ultrafined grained metallic materials.

Micro structural Analysis, Measurement of grain size using a) Heyn Intercept Method (Microstructures), XRD


Tensile properties evaluation using UTM and Evaluation of micro hardness

2) Industrial training in Vizag Steel Plant-Vishakhapatnam.

Objective: - Improvements of secondary steel making in VIZAG STEEL PLANT “under the guidance of Prof: Ramadevi

HOD Metallurgical Engineering JNTUCE Hyderabad.”


Slag arrestor has a density value between the slag and metal so it floats between and so that it minimizes the

entry of slag in to the ladle. But the efficiency of the slag arrestor is only 50%.Thus alternative usage of Laser

camera, slide gate system must be provided at the converter shop to get slag free tapping.

Al content can be overcome by using Ca addition (Injection of Ca-Si in the liquid bath of the ladle.) That will

convert Al to Aluminates there by reducing Al content which is responsible for nozzle clogging. The best results

are obtained with Al/Ca ratio ranging between 0.10 and 0.15%.

Suggested improvement methods in VSP are Steel Oxygen potential measurement, Standardization of Ladle

covering compound, Standardization of Tundish covering compound, Bottom Purging in Ladle. On-Line

purging with Argon during tapping, Introduction of better design mould plates to enhance cooling capacity.

Introduction of Ca-Si, Lime addition after tapping.

Skills and Expertise Developed
